Ok, I’ve been using Cubase 7 since day one and it’s been fine. I updated to 7.01 without problems. I may have got the occasional spike where the ASIO meter red LED would light but barely a stutter worth mentioning. On the 18th I updated to 7.02 and just recently I’ve been getting regular CPU spiking and stuttering, totally random. A project might run for minutes, then bam! A couple of times it has gone into a perpetual stutter and I’ve had to hard reboot my PC.
I’ve tried everything I can think of to track it down. I’ve been demoing HALion 4 so the first thing I tried was running my project with that dis-enabled. Same. Then I tried disabling UAD plug-ins. Same. Then I tried removing my PowerCore Access Virus and PowerCore plug-ins. Same. I’ve tried with ASIO Guard on/off and I’ve tried varying latency settings. No difference.
Frankly I’m at a loss and this is seriously spoiling my enjoyment.
I read that I could uninstall/change updates and get back to 7.01 by going to Control Panel, view installed updates, where it says: " To uninstall an update, select it from the list and then click Uninstall or Change", but for some reason this doesn’t work. I double click Cubase 7.02 64 bit Update from the list and nothing happens. I get the option to uninstall update with other updates but not the Cubase 7.02 64 bit Update. Odd!
I can do a system restore back to the 15th Feb but this will also remove HALion 4 demo, which I would like to avoid if possible.
Anyone got any suggestions? Anyone else with similar problems??
Anything at all? I’m completely perplexed.
